“The Lord is my shepherd there is nothing I shall want” (Ps: 23)

Our life is like a river; it flows continuously until it reaches its destination. Eventually it flows towards a direction where it has to go and not where we want it to go.Sister Vincentia winged her way to heaven, her final destination to meet her bridegroom in the wee hours of the morning of January 22, 2022 at the age of 95 and 72 year of her religious life at Presentation Convent, Dharwad. Sister Vincentia nee Jasmine Pinto hails from Sacred Heart Parish Gokak, Belgaum. She is the ninth child in her family of 11 children of late Mr John Baptist Pinto and MrsBibiana Pinto. Her dearly brother, Br Apoline SJ is enjoying the heavenly bliss.

She joined Bethany on 08.01.1950 and made her First Profession on 08.05.1952 and Perpetual Profession on 07.05.1958. Every one admired her for virtuous life that shone with the intense brightness in all her little acts of mercy and charity towards each and everyone. Prayer was for her forte in spite of her old age and ailments. She would be prompt to attend all her spiritual and community exercises and exuded joy wherever she was, be it in the chapel, refectory or community room. One could always find her at prayer before the Blessed Sacrament focused on ‘Jesus’ reciting and singing her sweet melodies to the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. She would quote “I can do everything with love because Jesus lives in my heart”. She attended to her spiritual exercises till the end.

She endeared herself to one and all where she lived and wherever she lived and worked in various missions of the Congregation giving of her very best in loving service to all. She has rendered her dedicated service at Bethany Mother House, Mangalore, Madeline Convent, Mulki, Providence Convent, Balkunje, Holy Angels Tokkottu, Sacred Heart Kulshekar, Lisieux Convent, Puttur, St Joseph’s Sagar, Madeline, Londa, Holy Cross Arsikere, Fatima Convent, Dornahalli, St Michael’s Convent, Dandelli, Bethany Convent, Gulbarga, Kripalaya and Presentation Convent Dharwad. She was simple, gentle and kind to all. She was deeply loved and respected by her relatives and extended family members.

I extend my sincere condolences to Sr Sally the Provincial Superior and all her Councilors; Sr Archana the local Superior and all the community sisters and all the members of Western Province.
Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul rest in peace.

Sr M Rose Celine BS
Superior General
